My name is Dani Lorenz. I am a 26 year old Australian, living in Germany and working as a professional Ballerina. I moved away from my family at the age of 16 and since then, I have experienced a lot of things that have brought me to the creation of this blog. Butterfly Diaries is a place where I can share my honest thoughts and feelings about life as I continue to grow and learn, and a way for me to connect with others and let you know that you are not alone. Life is a journey and it is a very difficult one sometimes but suppressing our feelings and hiding our struggles makes it so much harder. Vulnerability is a beautiful thing that we can all share. So I hope you will follow my journey through the twists and turns of life and feel a little less lonely.
